The Munsters is just your typical American family of Monsters. Herman works for an undertaker. Lily is a homemaker. Marilyn is the daughter of Lily's sister who lives with them and has problems keeping boyfriends once they see her parents. Eddie is just a typical schoolboy with werewolf tenancies. Grandpa is hundreds of years old and the Count from Transylvania. They deal with the normal problems of a family in unique ways.
